    1 of 7 MOBO Temperature spikes between 0C and 127C continously.

    A couple of months ago I decided to do something about the CPU temperature, which originally showed at 28C on startup 4 years ago, but over the years has creeped up to 36-38C. The Corsair community suggested reapplying the thermal compound to my liquid cooler... which worked great and the CPU temp was back down to 27-28C!
    A couple weeks ago I had some issues with a couple of fans starting to go bad. Yesterday I got them replaced. I fired up the Corsair Temperature Monitor software and I noticed the following under the heading Asus Maximus Extreme VI.
    There are 7 temperature monitor points for the MOBO
    Temp #1 26C
    Temp #2 29C
    Temp #3 26C
    Temp #4 30C
    Temp #5 48C
    **Temp #6 This is the reason for the post. It spikes at 127C for a second and then 0C for 2-3 seconds, repeatedly.
    Temp #7 36C
    All the other temperatures are steady.

    I'm not sure who to question about how to understand what is causing the Temp #6 spiking.
    Is there a way to find out what the ASUS MOBO monitor points are. Maybe I have something blocked or covered.
    I have extra external filters that I clean monthly and I open the PC up monthly and vacuum it .
    I am putting the same question to the Corsair site. This may be what the Corsair Temperature Monitor software does if there is no Temp #6 monitor info. I just never noticed it before.

    I greatly appreciate any suggestions. This Maximus Extreme VI was my first PC build and even though it is about 4-5 years old I still love this beast a lot.
